Player of the Year: Mia Wesley, Sr. OH, Mountain View
Wesley was the catalyst for the Bruins run to the 5A state title, just one season after Mountain View failed to make the playoffs in 2018. Wesley totaled 387 kills (3.9 per set) and hit .225. She also contributed 54 aces and 319 digs. She’s play her college volleyball at the University of Portland.
Setter of the Year: Abbie Miller, Sr. S, Pleasant Grove
Miller’s steady presence and ability to adapt to the opponents strategies were key to Pleasant Grove’s 6A state title. She dished out 1,074 assists (11.4 per set), had 52 aces, 163 digs and 44 blocks, which was third on the team. She will play at Utah Valley University next season.
Offensive MVP: Lauren Jardine, Jr. OH, Lone Peak
When Jardine got on a roll the Knights were pretty much unstoppable on offense. The junior totaled 431 kills (5.2 per set) while hitting .296. She also contributed 35 aces and 128 digs.
Defensive MVP: Hailey Oldroyd, Sr. L, Salem Hills
If you watched any Salem Hills volleyball this season you couldn’t miss the hustle, desire and leadership of Oldroyd. In her final season for the Skyhawks, Oldroyd totaled 381 digs and 74 aces while dishing out 25 assists.
Co-Coaches of the Year: Jaicee Roden, Mountain View and Allyce Jones, Pleasant Grove
Roden’s job at the beginning of the season looked daunting. The Bruins didn’t make the state tournament in 2018 and there were four freshmen in the starting rotation. Mountain View was the No. 2 seed at state and survived a tough quarterfinal against Maple Mountain before moving past Lehi and Farmington to claim the 5A title, the school's first volleyball championship since 1982.
Jones and her program have been remarkably consistent: The Vikings have played for the large-school state championship in eight consecutive seasons. PG lost to Lone Peak the past three years but powered through the 6A tournament and No. 1 seed Copper Hills this season to win the title.
